Artichoke-Pesto Dip

Servings: 8 Prep: 5 mins Cook: 0 mins Total: 5 mins

This dip is so easy and so tasty and so absolutely yummy … it’s so hard to believe that it’s so acceptable for us to eat!

Artichoke dips aren’t uncommon, nor are artichoke dips with parmesan and/or frozen spinach (all good combinations in their own right!). I just happened to have a bunch of basil lying around and a bunch of pesto in the freezer at the time. When I saw that … the whole thing just … CLICKED! I’m glad it did, too! The end result is a thoroughly delicious and filling dip.

Enjoy it with Hazelnut-Parmesan Crackers!

  1. Hi Shawna, I mixed it in. I only added the dollop on top as a garnish. The rest is mixed in. You could do both, like I did in the photo. It works and is just as tasty!

  2. Can you make this ahead?

    Thank you! I just needed to make it the night before as well. Sounds perfect. Thanks for your help!
    By the way, the hazelnut/parmesan crackers are delicious!

    Hi Meredith. It depends on HOW FAR ahead, but … Yes. Definitely. When I make it, I always make it the day before. I also typically make a big batch, so that some of it lingers in the fridge and I just snack on it for the following week. It keeps quite well, actually. I hope this helps! 🙂

  3. Thanks for a marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you can be a great author.
    I will be sure to bookmark your blog and may come back later in life.
    I want to encourage you to continue your great job, have a nice evening!


  4. Hi, DJ,
    I served your Artichoke-Pesto dip at a dinner party last night and it was a huge hit. I made my own Pesto using the CULINARIA.com website recipe since the store bought brand I bought was awful.
    Thank you for a terrific, easy recipe that I will be using over and over.
    By the way, are you familiar with the Culinaria website? I only recently discovered it, and although it is not a low carb website, there are many wonderful recipes that are low carb and many others that can be easily adapted to keto/low carb. The recipes, like yours, are written by a professional chef. One nice feature it it’s nutritional data. (Nothing as detailed as yours, but still very helpful.)
    Thank you again for this incredible website and all the information and DELICIOUS food you share with us.
    Carole
